The Diary of an Old Soul

30.

But why should it be possible to mistrust—
Nor possible only, but its opposite hard?
Why should not man believe because he must—
By sight’s compulsion? Why should he be scarred
With conflict? worn with doubting fine and long?—
No man is fit for heaven’s musician throng
Who has not tuned an instrument all shook and jarred.
